Community members are invited to a series of upcoming visioning meetings in September and October to weigh in on four new Milwaukie neighborhood parks. North Clackamas Parks & Recreation District (NCPRD) and the City of Milwaukie are partnering to plan and develop the parks, which are currently known as Balfour, Bowman-Brae, Robert Kronberg and Wichita parks. While funding to build the parks is not currently available, community input will help shape the concepts for the future parks.

The area north of Camas Creek presents an opportunity to create a passive recreation setting with an emphasis on environmental enhancement and education to balance the active recreation opportunities south of the creek. The key goal of the plan is to minimize environmental and property impacts, provide for ease of maintenance and longevity and provide a safe and enjoyable experience for the community. The Milwaukie City Council has approved the plan as an ancillary document to the Milwaukie Comprehensive Plan. For more details, click here.

NCPRD, the City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services (BES) and Metro recently partnered to purchase a 10-acre property between Johnson Creek and the Springwater Corridor. BES started the Luther Road Habitat Restoration Project in late June, 2014. When complete, the project will provide one-half mile of new trails connected to the Springwater Corridor Trail, new native trees, shrubs and ground cover, and create feeding, breeding and resting areas for fish and wildlife within and along Johnson Creek. NCPRD plans to create additional park amenities on the site in the future. For more details on the BES project click the Luther Road Habitat Restoration Project website link above.
Hood View Park offers four full size, all-weather turf softball/baseball fields with lights, one inlaid multi-purpose field and a concessions building.

NCPRD is hiring a contractor to build the playground and construction is scheduled to begin in fall, 2013.
Capital Improvement Plan (CIP)
NCPRD develops and maintains a comprehensive Capital Improvement Plan (CIP).
